"Sunrise"

Peaking through the dark clouds is

A glare of orange-yellow.

The Sun - encouraging the world to dance;

Dance in a steady tempo.

Sun, rise above the wicked clouds,

And stretch out your rays of golden light.

Sun, rise up and shine down below

On the swaying trees in sight.

It's the dawn after a storm;

A calm, fiery sky.

Build up your strong spirit

Against the cloud's cry.
